July 18, 2016 - Week 56


Well another week down, how are all of you?? So this is gonna be a pretty concise email because we have limited time today. We went to Guaymas for the 2nd part of our visa renewal like we did a couple of weeks ago and we just finished with that.

So you guys finally rested for a little bit this week, I bet that was nice. We had a really great week. We were focusing on finding a lot of people this week, and continue to work with the families we are teaching. This Sunday we´re gonna have 2 baptisms, Jaime and Dayana. It´s been so awesome to work with their family and see the changes they have made as a whole. Never underestimate the power that the gospel of Christ has to be able to change lives!! Reuben is working really hard as well and so is Manuel. The surest thing I can tell you all after 13 months is that no matter what the problems or difficulties that a person has in their lives, living the Gospel and obeying the commandments with the faith and hope that the Lord will recognize our sacrifice and bless us is the sure fire way to true happiness. 

I like in the Book of Mormon when Alma the Prophet is talking to his son Helaman and asks him if he believes in the words of the Lord, and Helaman says he does and that he loves Him, and so he will keep His comandments with all his heart. Alma 45:7. Something to be learned!!

Oh and I wanna give a huge thanks to the 4th ward YW, I got their birthday package and LOVE it!!!

Well I love you all and hope you all the best week!! Don't think that I'm forgetting about anyone, it's just that I don't have any time to write haha!! I love you all and we´ll talk more next week. All love!!
